Anyone have any experience with Redfield since Leupold took them over?  What did you think of the product?  Price is right, but I was wondering if the quality was there.

I tested them Murdy, and I was really impressed. Here’s the review if you’re interested: http://nontypicalhunter.com/2012/05/15/redfield-rebel-binocular-review/

just bought 2 revolution 3-9x50mm scopes, put one on a ruger american, and one on a ruger sr556 ar, i think they are very comparable to nikon scopes that i own, but with a better price, they do work well in low light conditions,(and they are american made)

Thanks you both for the input.  Looking for a reasonably priced scope for an old Mauser that has been “sporter-ized” (i.e, drilled and tapped, Monte Carlo stock).  Also got a friend looking for a budget range finder, and I saw Cabela’s had Redfields on sale.

I have a Redfield 4X12 variable on a 30-06 since late 70’s. Gret scope, leaked the nitrogen one time, sent back to factory, they completely refurbished the scope, has rangeing also, Still use it today.
